Every day you’re in a competition with yourself.
We all have feelings of weakness or down days. We are all scared of change. Scared of being tested.
Ultimately, you will either let yourself become whatever you dream about, or not.
No one else will be to blame. Everyone has challenges and tough circumstances.
Some worse and harder than yours.
Say you have a goal of becoming a millionaire… But how do you get there?
The first step is to improve your chances of success. Write the goal down… And revisit the goal every day to remind yourself what this goal is about.
It’s too easy to get distracted by short term “emergencies”.
We underestimate overestimate what we can do in the short term, and underestimate what we can do in the long term.
Also, if you’re really struggling, don’t kid yourself about what could be holding you back.
What can you cut out? Start dropping things that are weighing you down.
The list could be long.
Whatever your goal, it’s what you become in the process that is the most valuable.
The million dollar net worth will be nice. But by then you will have become someone much more valuable than a million dollars.
Indeed, someone could take away your million dollars and… at that point… guess what?
You’d make another million.
Because you will have overcome the weaknesses that were in the way prior to you meeting that goal.
You know the road now.
You have a system. And it’s internal.
Be honest with yourself when you look in the mirror about who your competition is.
